The Second Disc

Expanded and Remastered Music News

Bobbing for Apple in October

with 5 comments

Well, it’s happening: NME is reporting that Apple Records remasters are on their way October 25. No label has been specified (recall the rumors that Rhino, not EMI, was working on these), but the albums in question have been. Cautious optimism abounds, as there hasn’t been any discussion of bonus tracks or any additional material.

(UPDATE 7/7/2010: An official release has been issued and can be read here. Looks like EMI is doing these, with promises of some bonus material and digital releases – could The Beatles themselves be far behind? Also, note that The Modern Jazz Quartet and John Tavener LPs will be two-fers, so it’ll be 15 albums on 13 discs.)

  2. The only ones of these I’m in dire need of are Ass (hopefully at least the bonus track from the old CD will be represented) and the Jackie Lomax, though I’d absolutely pick up the rest of the Badfinger stuff if there’s new bonus tracks. But I can definitely see myself getting the Mary Hopkin and Billy Preston discs.
